This class is for anyone who has a passion for creating handmade books that can be customized to suit your style and taste in both design and paper choices.
Step by step I take you through the process I use to create my own art journals from readily available materials and supplies. In fact, most of the supplies used for this class were obtained from local art supply stores.
We will create three different books, with three different basic book binding methods. The binding methods I use are not decorative necessarily, but they are easy to create and in some cases, easy to replace so that you can refill your books over and over again if you like.
We'll explore how to create the cover and backing, how to choose the right paper for your pages, how to embellish your covers and how to bind your pages.
I'll show you how I install a door inside my cover too!
